Draft Ulster County Local Solid Waste Management Plan
The public comment period for the Draft Ulster County Local Solid Waste Management Plan is open.
The Ulster County Resource Recovery Agency (UCRRA or Agency), as the solid waste planning unit for Ulster County, has retained Cornerstone Engineering, Geology and Land Surveying, PLLC (Cornerstone) to develop a Local Solid Waste Management Plan (LSWMP) which covers the 10-year period from 2020 through 2029.
UCRRA has a history of being proactive and innovative with its solid waste management program and this new LSWMP is an opportunity to evaluate and enhance existing programs enabling UCRRA to make the best use of its resources as well as optimize recycling and diversion efforts. The new LSWMP is intended to not only create a valuable planning tool for the future of solid waste but to bring new waste handling practices and technology to the planning unit.
A public comment period will run for 45 days, from Monday, October 28, 2019 through close-of-business on Wednesday, December 11, 2019.
Please note that there is a Public Hearing regarding the Draft Ulster County Local Solid Waste Management Plan scheduled for Monday, November 18, 2019 at 7:00pm at the Agency's Main Office located at 999 Flatbush Road, Kingston, NY 12401.
